Sweet Potato and Avocado Salad


Eating a variety of colors is essential to a healthy diet. Buy as many veggies as you can and combine different flavors and colors. Tonight I made what I thought was a weird combination of veggies but the taste was insane. I love my sweet veggies and I love combining veggies. Tonight was sweet potato, sweet pepper and an avocado spread. I tossed in some garbanzo beans for protein.
Steam your sweet potato. Cut it up in chunks and steam it until you can put a fork through all the pieces.

Cut up a sweet pepper so you can add it to the potato.
Avocado spread: 1/2 of an avocado, lemon juice, 1 clove of garlic, 2 tsp olive oil, water to thin out. Put all ingredients in your food processor and process on high. Use as a dressing for your veggies.
Toss all veggies and the beans together. I started by filling my plate with the sweet potato pieces and, then the pepper, beans and topped everything with the avocado spread. It was delish!

  1. See-you think like I do. The more colors the better. I even add blueberries to "dinner." And garbanzos are my 'go to' bean.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.
